AIN’T NO PARTY LIKE A DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN PARTY ‘CAUSE A DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN PARTY ENDS WITH EVERYONE ON STAGE
I’m not going to do a full, detailed show review of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s headlining gig at at The Music Hall of Williamsburg this past Sunday night because at this point I don’t really know what else to say about the band’s performance that I haven’t already said. They put on one of the most fun live shows of any band out there right now, and they never disappoint — especially at a smallish venue like this one, where security is more likely to let them truly embody the spirit of punk, as they were born to do.
Case in point: for the last two songs of the pre-encore set, “Sunshine the Werewolf” and, of course, “43% Burnt,” Greg Puciato demanded that everyone on the floor get up on the stage… and everyone was only too-happy to oblige him. (And keep in mind that, on top of this, Puciato and Weinman were both already bleeding from their respective heads by this point.) Now, I know this isn’t exactly a new idea — Iggy and The Stooges do it at the end of every show — but that doesn’t make it any less fun/crazy.

You can get DEP tour dates here. If you’ve never seen them live before, you really need to, and if you already have, well… it never gets old!
